Really great John. What about the date? The 60s, I imagine?

Yes, I haven't the original with me but it is almost certainly when KC and I did the S face of the Geant.

Sorry, I forgot to add to this last comment in 1966

A couple of interesting points are the summer skiing - can't remember when this was abandoned - sometime in the 90s maybe? And secondly, even in 1966 there's a huge trail blazed up to the start of the Tour Ronde normal route, and that the big wide couloir that forms the start of it hardly ever looks like that in summer nowadays.
